Google has announced a smart new organizational feature for its note-taking and to-do list app, Google Keep.
The app can now intelligently categorize users' notes by topic, such as food, books, and travel, and entries can be searched by keyword using topic shortcuts which appear in the search bar.
Google Keep, which also offers a web interface, includes other features like list support, label and color organization tools, note reminders based on time or place, voice memos with automatic transcription, collaborative note-taking, and more.
The feature update for the note-taking service comes just a day after Evernote hiked its paid plan prices and announced it would be imposing a two-device limit on its free plan account holders.
Some MacRumors forum members have since been discussing moving over to the native iOS Notes app. To migrate Evernote notes to Apple Notes, follow these simple steps:
- Download and install the Evernote Mac app, launch it, and click Edit -> Select All in the menu bar.
- Next, click File -> Export Notes..., select the Evernote XML format, and save the file in a convenient location.
- Open Apple Notes, click File -> Import Notes... in the Apple Notes menu bar and select the exported Evernote XML file to import.
iOS 9.3 added support for importing Evernote XML data into Notes, so alternatively you could save the exported file you created in step 3 to your iCloud drive. Then simply locate the file on your iOS device and long-press it to import the note data.
